Hard graft for Prosport Racing as BoP changes again blight their ADAC GT4 Germany efforts

Sunday, August 20, 2023


Championship points were certainly hard to come by at the weekend for the four Prosport Racing Aston Martin Vantage GT4 crews competing within this weekend’s fourth round of the ADAC GT4 Germany Series around the banked oval and infield of the Lausitzring.

Having lost the Doer Motorsport team from championship contention since the last round at the Nurburgring, AMR honours have been left to the Christoph Esser lead team and principally their #1 crew of reigning champions Mike David Ortmann and Hugo Sasse.

Re-stablishing themselves at the top of the overall leader board thanks to two podium finishes at the Nurburgring, another negative Balance of Performance adjustment towards the Aston Martin would see all four cars struggle for every inch of progress.

The #1 car was again the most resourceful with what they had with Sasse qualifying their car in third ahead of Saturday’s start. That would later transpire into a just off the podium P4 finish whilst the #48 Trophy class car of Yevgen Sokolovskiy and Daman Surzyshyn also claimed another class podium for their efforts too.

In Sunday’s concluding race of the weekend, it very nearly all went wrong for the team as Raphael Rennhofer got turned around into the fact turn one which resulted in their first DNF of the season so far before the #48 also became involved on an incident of their own on the restart which saw Sokolovskiy retire the car off track after contact.

The all-lady crew of the green #13 car saw Celia Martin and Fabienne Wohlwend their best weekend of the series so far finishing P22 and P19 over the two races respectively.

Despite all of this and a lowly qualifying position for the #1 car, the young duo were able to progress through the ranks to claim third overall by race end to retain the championship lead by now just six points as the series moves onto the Sachensring later in September.
